In December 2018, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Trader Joe’s for allegedly deceptively marketing its Honey Nut O’s breakfast cereal. Specifically, the complaint alleges that Trader Joe’s sends the message that honey is the primary sweetener in the cereal when, according to plaintiffs, it contains a small amount of honey and the primary sweeteners are white sugar and brown sugar. (Lima et al v. Trader Joe’s Company
, Case No. 18-cv-12591, D. MA.)
